    Another bad relationship thread

    Hey life will knock you down like that. It sucks, and it hurts. What you do now is what's important. Be strong. Move on. It's very easy to say and much harder to do. I was married for many years when it fell apart. My ex said so many hurtful things. They might have not been the same...

    Last minute Kiss tickets. Yeah or nope?

    Got last minute tickets just prior to Covid for 35 bucks each. It was a blast. No, it's not deep, meaningful or thought provoking but lots of fun. Kind of like seeing a sci movie with a cheesy plot that makes you smile anyway.

    Steely favorites.

    So many great tunes, but if I had to pick one it would be Do it Again. So smooth and yet filled with menace at the same time.

    How much do you value a guitar's appearance? And do you like having great photos of your gear?

    I take some photos. Don't really mess with different lighting etc. But I like to have accurate pics for insurance and to catalog what I have had over the years. And looks are important for a guitar. Never bought one I thought was ugly.

    Custom Shack Strat?

    Very likely a partscaster. The custom shack guitars are sold through an ebay seller who seems to put low price guitars together and resell them.

    How bad has USPS gotten?

    I have had some bad shipping experiences in the past but two weeks ago I ordered a pedal from a small Canadian builder. It took about 10 days to arrive (I am in NC) so it seems a bit random. This one went through JFK in NY but no major delays or issues. I guess I should consider my self lucky!

    No Slipknot fans?

    Like their sound, though I have not followed the band closely. Very sad to lose a talented musician, especially one so young.

    Got really frustrated with my playing the other day

    Very nice. Sweet tone and phrasing. I find sometimes I pick up my guitar, solo over some backing track and everything is magic. And some days I can put on the same exact track and everything is awful. It's like it's in the air.
